Abstract: Coulomb interaction and its screening play an important role in many physical phenomena of materials ranging from optical properties to many-body effects including superconductivity. Here, we report on a systematic study of dielectric screening in few-layer black phosphorus (BP), a twodimensional material with promising electronic and optical characteristics. We use a combination of a tight-binding model and rigorously determined bare Coulomb interactions, which allows us to consider relevant microscopic effects beyond the long-wavelength limit. We calculate the dielectric function of few-layer BP in the random phase approximation and show that it exhibits strongly anisotropic behavior even in the static limit. We also estimate the strength of effective local and non-local Coulomb interactions and determine their doping dependence. We find that the pz states responsible for low-energy excitations in BP provide a moderate contribution to the screening, weakening the on-site Coulomb interaction by less that a factor of two. Finally, we calculate the full plasmon spectrum of few-layer BP and discuss the effects beyond long-wavelengths. © 2017 IOP Publishing Ltd.
